    I don’t understand a coach who sets a players that are her scores. Looks to me like she has give up on this team and is working on next year.
    Like Bussabarger is high score this year and she still out scores everyone else on team and pulls four reb. and only playing 20mins. Again looks like she could care less about this years team.
